'Keith - Scruggs - Bump' Tuners for 2nd and 3rd strings.
Early production tuners made prior to 1971.
Rarely used but serviced by Martin Keith / Beacon Banjos Nov. 2021

Here is information given by Bill Keith from the Beacon Banjo web site:

The various types of cams that were installed on top of the peghead were often referred to as ‘Scruggs Pegs.’ But, because the new tuners that ' DAN BUMP ' and I made were quite different and were our invention, these were not Scruggs Pegs. Ours were hidden under the peghead, were part of the tuning peg itself and did not contain cams. Also, Earl had nothing to do with the design and development of this new tuner. However, when Earl did become part owner with us and we began production of the next 500 pairs, all three of our names: “Scruggs-Keith-Bump”, were stamped on the flat surface of the tuner where my name had been stamped on those first few pairs. During the remainder of the 1960’s, his name remained on them, but around 1970 when he sold his shares back to the company, we changed the stamp to the “Keith Banjo Tuner.”
